Caramon Majere is a giant of a man. He is 25 years old and stands 6'3" tall. He weighs over 220 pounds, is enormously strong, and is basically a walking arsenal. Aside from his giant like physique, he has big, caring, bright blue eyes and long flowing brown hair. The women find Caramon extremely good looking, and his numerous battle scars only make him that much more attractive. More often than not, you will find Caramon with a look confusion on his face. This usually follows a stern reprimand from his twin brother, Raistlin, from whose side Caramon rarely strays for long.
Caramon is a gentle giant...when he wants to be. Yet, he is really at his best when he's smashing goblins' heads together. Caramon has a tendency to over analyze situations. This usually causes Caramon appear slow and dumb to his friends but, if given enough time, the conclusions that he comes to are usually quite profound. Caramon has three loves in his life: beautiful women, ale, and his twin. The latter he loves to a fault. Unfortunately, Caramon is more often smothering and over protective. Although, Caramon will still defend his brother to his dying breath, he seems a bit more reluctant than he used to be to jump to Raistlin's defense against their friends.

Caramon Majere was born in 326 AC a woodcutter's son. It was a complicated birth. Caramon (the first born) was strapping and healthy. Raistlin, however, had to be nursed to health continuously by their half-sister, Kitiara. His father, Gilon, died in an accident when Caramon was only 6. Soon after, his mother, Rosamun, went into one of her delusional trances and never came out.
Caramon met Sturm in his early teens; they did not get off to a good start. The two got into a fight because Sturm insulted Raistlin. Tas discovered the young boys and decided to "adopt" them. This is how Caramon met Flint and Tanis. The six companions (seven with Kitiara) went on many treks as an entourage to Flint's business. Soon, though, the companions decided to separate to find some truth to the rumors of war. Raistlin had other plans.
Raistlin was to take the Test of High Sorcery and Caramon accompanied him on this trip. During the Test, Raistlin killed an illusion of his twin, which Caramon witnessed. Their relationship has been strained since. The 5 years following this, the two brothers became mercenaries to learn how to combine magic and steel effectively and have now become a very lethal team in battle.
